Migration, Place and Diversity

Module code: GY3415

We're in a new era of migration and this module considers some of the patterns, processes, policies and bordering practices that shape experiences of global migration.  The module challenges assumptions around the process of migration, the location of borders, who migrates and why and how superdiversity is lived and experienced as part of everyday lives.  

You'll focus on particular places around the world, for example, Dubai and Calais, to think about some of these issues.  My favourite part of the module is listening to student presentations on their family stories of migration, and how their lives are shaped by it - your experiences fuel the module.
